The MOH Proudly Presents the Boogie-Woogie Bugle Boy Musical, “Andrews Brothers” by Roger Bean

The Memorial Opera House’s proudly presents the Boogie-Woogie Bugle Boy musical, “Andrews Brothers” by Roger Bean.

At an afternoon rehearsal for a USO show in the South Pacific, Max, Lawrence and Patrick Andrews are rehearsing with pin-up girl Peggy Jones for the big show that night. What Peggy doesn't know is that the brothers are really just the stagehands for the show – her back-up singers didn't arrive in time, and the boys were recruited by the Major in charge to fill in where needed. Just as they assume all will work out well, a radiogram arrives with the news that the headliners for tonight's show, The Andrews Sisters, have been held in quarantine in Hawaii. The show must be cancelled. Unless, of course, there's a way for the Andrews Sisters to appear...

Peggy introduces The Andrews – and our three brothers must now pull off the performance of a lifetime as they become Maxene, Patty & LaVerne Andrews. Peggy joins them throughout their set as the brothers perform the greatest hits of one of the finest singing groups of all time.

Mistaken identities and madcap adventures (imagine Bing Crosby & Bob Hope in a road movie of 'Some Like It Hot') along with the music of an entire generation highlight this wonderful valentine to the heroes of World War II.

Great songs include: Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree, The Hut-Sut Song, Rosie the Riveter, Peggy the Pin-Up Girl, Breathless, Mairzy Doats, A Slow Boat to China, Hawaiian War Chant, Beat Me Daddy, Eight to the Bar, Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive and many more.
